Those Who Can Lose With Grace

The one who can smile in the face of defeat
Amongst the most honorable can take a seat
And congratulate the winner with a hug and well done
To smile though disappointed it does take a brave one
The winner has won the right for to feel proud
And the winner in victory can laugh aloud
But it takes a noble person for to lose with grace
And accept defeat with a happy smiling face
The praises of the winner the audience may sing
But those who can lose with grace honor on themselves bring
And the ungracious loser is a loser indeed
Such an attitude with the winning of respect does never succeed
For one to win another must lose since life is this way
But the one who can smile in defeat will be a winner one day.
